Artist: CJ Lavoire
Title: The First Of The Year
Catalogue number: Bad Panda 002
Release date: 14.12.2009

Inspired and influenced by musicians like Jean Michelle Jarre, Air, Sigur Ros, Kraftwerk and Ennio Morricone, Cj (or Composer Jockey) Lavoire is the last project by Italian Valerio Franchi.

As a child, Valerio had a classical education at the Saint Cecilia Conservatory, studying clarinet and obtaining a solfege degree and then developed a strong interest for choral music (Josquin Desprez) under the guide of maestro Claudio Dall'Albero.

During his studies at the conservatory, Valerio started for fun to compose popular music with surreal-grotesque lyrics a la Frank Zappa and Elio e le storie tese, winning a competition launched by a show on Italian Radio2.

Then, hypnotized by Jarre's Oxygene IV Penguins, he went deep into electronic music experimenting a peculiar kind of music and playing around the colour of sounds and its shade.

Incredibly prolific and making music under many different aliases, his production seem to shift each album, from very minimal tonal processing to ambient soundtrack and more loop-based instrumental stuff.

He has also written original works for theatre and several short films. He is currently preparing his live set and planning to tour again Italy on spring.

The song 'First of The Year' is featured on his self-released album, Jump, from 2007.
